    Extracurriculars: I liked Beta Club. It wasn't the most fun, since we had to pay to stay in it, but it was cool getting a cord for graduation.

    Health & Safety: Bullying is not tolerated at our school. If a student has a problem that can go to any teacher or administrator and it is handled in the appropriate manner. Our safety comes first no questions ask. If a student has a health issue, we have a RN on staff for the entire school year. As a member of the Varisty baseball team, with all sports we have a Sports Trainer that is affiliated with Mission Health Systems at all games and practices.
